The Driver

Walter Hill USA, 1978

Bilouaustria's rating of the film Driver

Highly entertaining neo-noir. The silent driver, the badass cop and the french femme fatale in a classic car-chase that often evokes the late Melville work. So dry and right on the nerve it seems everything that was not essential got cut (including dialogues). You rarely see a genre film with such a strong identity.
